In this week’s show we return with another couple of reviews from Candy Jar’s Lethbridge-Stewart series. First we look at The Grandfather Infestation by John Peel. We follow that with a look at a recent short story, The Playing Dead penned by author Adrian Sherlock. We break down the good and the bad with both of these stories.
Also, with a week off, we catch up on some news, including the BBC’s announcement about an animated Power of the Daleks featuring the first appearance of Patrick Troughton’s Doctor.
We are off this week, but never fear, we still have a special treat for your podcast feed. We recently had a chance to speak with Jonathan Cooper, the author of the Lethbridge-Stewart novel, The Showstoppers. You can hear about how Jonathan developed the idea for the story and brought its many character to life.
Our special thanks to Andy Frankham-Allen and Candy Jar Books for helping us come together with Jonathan to discuss the novel.
You can still order The Showstoppers as well as other books in the Lethbridge-Stewart line of books at Candy Jar’s website, here.
Rah, rah, rah! We check in this week with a long one, but a good one. This time we look at another Doctor Who story that has been lost in time, with our attention on The Macra Terror. We examine both the Loose Canon reconstruction of the Patrick Troughton, Second Doctor Story and the novelization written by screenwriter, Ian Stuart Black.
Also, rumor news involving a leaked animation clip that appeared online and then disappeared shortly after, some convention announcements, and a new limited edition book from our friends over at Candy Jar Books.
And, of course your feedback.
UPDATE: We misspoke on this week’s show. The Havoc Files 2 is not included in the 30% discount with the special EPICLS30 code. Sorry for the misunderstanding. This from Candy Jar:
To clear up a bit of confusion: The HAVOC Files 2 is *not* included in the 30% offer. All other LS titles are, tho. https://t.co/Gu5bVOtMOj

In this week’s show we tackle a subject that has sometimes caused great divides in Doctor Who fandom. A controversy so big, that some have chosen to sideline the debate altogether, just to avoid it. However, some cleaver writing has, perhaps solved the issue for good. We discuss the issue with a special guest, and continuity fix-it-man, Andy Frankham-Allen. He’s an author and the deputy editor of the Lethbridge-Stewart series at Candy Jar Books.
